Victoria, Calgary, Toronto and now, Vancouver. The Agency’s Canadian expansion continues with our latest office opening on Vancouver’s North Shore. The new office is led by esteemed agents and Vancouver natives, Managing Partners Kit Matkaluk and Hugh Cooper, known throughout the region as Kit & Coop. The Vancouver office joins a network of Canadian offices in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, including Victoria, Cowichan, Calgary, Kitchener, Oakville, and Toronto.
“We’re excited to welcome Kit and Hugh to The Agency family as we continue to expand our footprint in Canada,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “The luxury real estate market in Vancouver is flourishing, and we know our partners Kit and Hugh will be incredible stewards of The Agency brand and our unique culture. ”
“We’ve experienced incredible demand for The Agency brand throughout Canada as we continue to grow our presence in the area,” said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales at The Agency. “Our new franchise in Vancouver is an ideal fit for The Agency, bringing its unparalleled offerings and tools to agents and clients as more and more buyers are moving to this majestic city.”
Kit and Coop have more than 15 years of combined real estate experience. The duo has consistently ranked as the number one team in gross sales and volume per the MLS in Lower Lonsdale since 2016 and has sold $350 million in real estate, bringing a wealth of knowledge, expertise and proven results to The Agency.
Utilizing a holistic approach to their business, both Matkaluk and Cooper focus on honesty, simplicity, passion and communication when serving clients. Long time North Shore residents, Kit and Coop have a deep love and appreciation for their local community, giving of their time by serving on various boards including the Lonsdale BIA, Hollyburn Hockey Committee and donating to organizations dedicated to bettering the North Shore and its youth such as the Lion’s Gate Hospital and Homeschool Help, an initiative powered by North Shore Neighborhood House that provided computers and tablets to kids in need during the pandemic.
“We’re thrilled to join The Agency and bring its exclusive tools and offerings to our clients,” said Kit. “We’ve long admired the brand’s unmatched marketing and collaborative environment, which sets The Agency apart from other brokerages in the area,” added Coop.
The Agency has continued its growth trajectory with the debut of multiple new locations this year including offices in New Canaan, Connecticut, North Shore-New York, Studio City and Pacific Palisades, California.
